Microsoft Says Google Tracks Users in Internet Explorer, Too

BY EVAN THOMAS ANCHOR NATHAN BYRNE It looks like Safari and the iPhone were only the tip of the iceberg. Microsoft is reporting Google bypasses tracking blocks in Internet Explorer, too. KNTV has details. "The latest is Microsoft claiming that Google is working around its virtual "do not disturb" signs using code to get at your data inside Microsoft's Internet Explorer, much like it was accused of doing with Apple's Safari browser." Internet Explorer uses a system called P3P to determine a given website's tacking and privacy policies. According to Microsoft, Google submits a P3P policy to Internet Explorer, but it's only so it can get in the door.
